Why, hello, there! Welcome to my blog, Bedknobs & Baubles! My name is Jessica Hamm. I grew up in Northern Wisconsin, not far from the shores of Lake Superior, moved to Madison, Wis. after high school to attend the University of Wisconsin and pursue a double major in English and Journalism with an emphasis on strategic communication. I’m currently an events manager for a local business publication.
As you’d expect, jewelry takes center stage in my wardrobe — and right here on the blog — but there’s more to me than that! I know my way around the kitchen — sugar cookies are my speciality. I love traveling with my boyfriend, Dave, and spending time pre-planning or daydreaming about our next escape. We’re craft beer aficionados and have been known to go out of our way to try a rare or new-to-us brew. We have a bengal cat named Bacon, after Sir Francis Bacon, not the breakfast meat. Our cat is more sophisticated than that. (
If when we get another bengal, we’re naming him Tycho after Mr. Brahe. Geeky? Sure. But aren’t they perfect cat names?)

weekly grocery store flowers, artisanal cheese, collecting seashells
luxe luggage, costume jewelry, playing cribbage and euchre (it’s a Wisconsin thing)
